Dave Wennergren, Senior Vice President for Technology, PSC

As Congress comes back next week, the Defense Department expects to make a huge push to end sequestration -- or at least blunt its effects. Part of the case the Pentagon will make is that its "cost culture" strategy is making a difference in how it's spending the money it does have. Dave Wennergren is Senior Vice President for Technology at the Professional Services Council, and former Assistant Deputy Chief Management Officer at the Defense Department. He shared his Top 3 for 2015 on In Depth with Francis Rose. He said that cost culture will spread from the Pentagon to all across government.

Buying commercial in DoD: 15 years after acquisition reform

The idea was to have the military buy many products the same way businesses do. A decade and a half later, DoD now spends tens of billions of dollars a year under the commercialized models Congress set up. In a two-part, exclusive report, Federal News Radio examines the debate underway over how well it has worked out.
